It’s that time of year. August. Late winter on our edge of the Zambezi escarpment. When the earth heats up; when the seeds go wild. My garden is coming into its annual climax and my heart is happy.

September and October for us here in the Zambezi Valley is much like it is for haute couture in Paris: it’s Fashion Week.
